Download 3 Day Route Map

161/187 Miles

A fun and exciting route for riders who like a bit of a challenge, but may not have the time for a longer DALMAC adventure.

Friday: to Grayling High School – 65 Miles
3-Day East riders begin their DALMAC on Friday in Gladwin by heading North, deep into White Pine country, passing West of Houghton and Higgins Lakes for an ending in Grayling.

Saturday: to Inland Lakes High School (Indian River) – 54 Miles
On Saturday, riders head northwest on scenic tree-lined roads, following the shores of Otsego Lake, through Gaylord and all the way to Inland Lakes High School in Indian River.

Sunday: to Mackinaw City High School – 42/68 Miles
Sunday provides riders with a choice:  taking the shorter, more direct route to the finish in Mackinaw City, 41 miles away, or following a 71-mile route crossing the Tip of the Mitt to Good Hart, where a fabulous lunch stop awaits. Riders will then join DALMAC riders from the West Routes riding North through Michigan’s Tunnel of Trees, overlooking Lake Michigan, before finishing in Mackinaw City.
